Wish we had remodeled master bath sooner
The only regret we have is that we did not do this remodeling earlier. We moved to our home in 1987 and plan on retiring here and living here as long as we are physically able. We have over 10 acres of country yard and woodland, at the end of a road that is peaceful and quiet with friendly neighbors. The primary goal of the master bath remodel project was twofold. The first was to remove a bathtub that was no longer used. The second was to install a fully accessible, walk-in shower with all needed safety and convenience features for now and the future. After researching several construction companies online, we invited Tom Schiebout of Tomco Company to come and discuss the project with us. It became apparent that his thinking went far beyond the immediate goals we had. As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist he pointed out the importance of anticipating both present and future needs in doing the remodeling. As a result, we have a room that is fully accessible now and even wheel chair accessible for the future. Tom listened to what we wanted, talked with us about construction details, guided us toward sources for tile and fixture, and presented a plan and a bid for the work. He gave us an estimate as to the time the remodeling would take and the cost. He took care of all permits for the city. His crew of professionals were highly competent, considerate, unobtrusive, and extremely careful about dust and all debris removal. They readily answered questions we had thorough out the project. There were no cost overruns. Any change orders were made clear and agreed upon and the project was done in the timeframe promised. The new space is inviting and the safety bars and features are reassuring as well as beautiful. The convenience of the room has added comfort and beauty to our home. Doing business with Tom was easy. He is a clear communicator. He listened carefully, he came back with a clear plan. We worked together on all the details and the costs were exactly what we agreed upon. He is honest and open about the smallest issue. The job was finished on time and we have no hesitation in recommending him to others based on his work with us! We are totally satisfied customers.
We hired Tomco to convert a 3-season porch into a 4-season living room. Although we could have chosen a lower bid, the quality of work and degree of professionalism made it completely worth it. In a nutshell:
1) The design work and virtual models in the planning phase were very helpful! Completely worth the effort/expense and really helped us understand what we were going to get and there were truly no surprises.
2) We elected to vault the ceiling at the last minute, of course throwing a wrench into all the plans. Tom made that seamless when I'm sure it wasn't just a simple thing to add.
3) The final product looks fantastic and "feels" very well done - you know like when you walk through a new construction in a mass-produced development and it just feels poorly done? This feels more like a hand-crafted home, which is, of course, what it is.
Overall we're very pleased with the work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tomco to others.
Tomco Company completed a master bedroom addition that included a new master bath, walk-in closet, and walkout screened in porch. They also replaced all the windows in the remainder of the house.
Tom provided excellent service and we wouldn't hesitate to contact him again for a home improvement project. The quality of work is excellent and Tom was honest, reliable, and easy to communicate with through the entire project. He was willing to work within our budget during the planning phase. The sub-contractors that work with Tomco are all highly professional, respectful, and do high quality work. Tom made sure we stayed on schedule and throughout the project provided us with timely updates about supply deliveries and when work would be done. Tom was onsite at the project often and made sure all the work done was up to his high quality standards. He was also extremely knowledgeable about window replacement and very patient with educating us on all our options. We could not be more pleased with the work that we had done. We are completely satisfied with our new master bedroom suite and the fiberglass windows we had installed throughout the house.
Consistency and quality
We have used Tomco for several projects. The most recent one was windows. We have also used Tomco for a complete kitchen remodel and also a garage demo and rebuild. We might find lower bids but never the consistency and assurance of quality workers Tom brings with him. Follow-up for anything that might be necessary is always thorough and timely. Plus, his workers clean up after themselves! Tom cares about the quality of his work and checks on evey aspect of the job. He has a calm demeanor- helpful when a homeowner may be feeling stressed out. We have many friends who also use Tomco for the same reason- peace of mind that things will be done right.
A Basement To Remember
We used Tomco to remodel our basement and turn it into the dream room that we dimly envisioned when we built the house 15 years ago. We were very happy with the results. Tom was pleasant and punctual. The job was done on time and his subcontractors were all capable and courteous, with good attention to detail. He communicated with us often to make sure that we would understand the process and be pleased with the finished project. He had creative ideas how to make some of our requests actually happen with our basement space. He even scheduled a particularly messy project for when we were away on vacation. After the project, he has been very attentive to our few concerns and made them right! We highly recommend Tomco and plan to use them again in the future.
tear down that wall!
We purchased our home in September of 2015 and knew immediately we would have a project for Tomco. We have used them for 4 different projects over the past 21 years and have always been extremely satisfied with their professionalism and high quality of work. This project involved removing an interior wall and matching a railing with glass inserts. The best compliment we can give is that it looks like it was designed this way. It all matches perfectly and has made a dramatic impact on our living space. Kudos to Tom and his crew for satisfying a very picky customer!
Other project work included a bathroom remodel, a massive 2 level cedar deck, a bow window with seat and a basement egress window. We obviously would not keep going back to Tomco if they hadn't continued to exceed our expectations.
Tomco Company Inc. has been a valued customer for over 25 years maintaining an excellent credit rating with Spring Lake Park Lumber Co. I would like to thank Tom for working with us and look forward to providing materials for his future projects.
Entire House Window Replacement
Wow, wow, wow! What a difference the new windows make in my Mom's house. You did an absolutely wonderful job! We're so glad that you talked us into the whole window replacement. The whole family is pleased.
Tom recently showed me a stunning wood and porcelain tile floor Tomco installed in Blaine. It must have been a bear to lay out the pattern. Turned out great.
It has been exactly one year now since we had Tomco update our kitchen. It still looks like new! Tom was very helpful in giving us ideas and suggestions. The work was completed on time and according to schedule. Everything was planned so we knew who was coming on which day and what their job was. The workers were courteous and professional. They cleaned up every day when they left. They were on time for the job. I would definitely recommend this company for work in the future.
